Excerpt: Monitor is used for Desktop Publishing and Flight Simulation. The first monitor I received had some issues with stuck pixels and small cosmetic blemishes on frame. B&H sent a replacement monitor upon requesting an RMA with quick dispatch. The new product is perfect and the B&H customer service exceptional.
Excerpt: I like this monitor. The color is great. I like the screen that is not reflect the light. This is very useful for me since i put it close to window and the sunlight is not bother me anymore. I also like to shop in B&H because it doesn't charge me tax when I order from web. Great!
Excerpt: I'm using this with my MacBook Pro for video editing with Final Cut Pro X. What a difference! Having the extra real estate on the screen making editing so much faster and efficient. The quality is outstanding. I was on a budget and couldn't afford more expensive monitors but I have zero regrets buying this. A great monitor at a great price.
Worth the money over all the other 27" 1440px options

Summary: As a previous Apple 27" iMac user, I have an exceptional eye for a good screen. This is nice. I'm a photo/Video editor, so the resolution is needed. Plus I love to edit Headshots in Portrait mode, Simply amazing to work like this. I, like many others, have been waiting for the new apple monitor and wait we shall. Great monitor for the price, not as sharp as the Apple Monitor, but no Glare, so I'll take the trade off any day.
Excerpt: I have use this monitor for over 2 months now and its fantastic. I have it mounted to a 4 monitor setup via vesa mounts. This is my firs IPS so I really don't have anything to compare it to other than my old TN panels, But from what I can see it's color reproduction is right on the money. As far as the backlight bleed, there isn't any that I can see. My only gripe is the inputs on the back are a tad bit cramped. All in all a great monitor.
Summary: Wanted to replace my 24" and 22" dual display with a 1440p 27" that could handle colour accuracy for my design work and provide the gaming performance I needed. I can happily say I didn't notice any ghosting with 1080p movies or input lag in Street Fighter IV. Definitely worth a look if you're in the market for a best of both worlds monitor. I added a second GTX 770 4GB because 1440p gaming is pretty demanding.
Pros: Beautiful, Vibrant and consistent colours, Low input lag for fighting games (26ms)
Absolutely one of the best available (as of Aug 2014). Just a few comments after using for a bit...

Summary: The Asus PB278Q is Incredible, period. We also have a PB287Q, which is 4k 28" (paid $650 in Aug 2014), but that one is just too small of a screen for regular use at 4k. This 27" beauty has a better panel, is a more reasonable resolution for a 27" screen, and is a better price point ($450 in Aug 2014). If you are doing detailed image work, get the PB287Q 28" 4k monitor, otherwise, for almost any other reason, including gaming, get the PB278Q 27" 2560x1440 monitor.
Excerpt: Looks like Asus did more than just redesigned the frame of the PB278Q. The colors are some of the best I've seen on any monitor. By using the Displayport, there isn't much you need to adjust. I think this is a new and updated version.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Versatile, Works Great Out Of The Bo
